Watch as 50ft waves hit North Sea oil platform

Extreme weather left North Sea oil workers stranded offshore as 50ft waves battered their platform.

Crews aboard the Judy facility 150 miles off the coast of Aberdeen were due to arrive home on Thursday.

But rough sea conditions meant helicopters were unable to fly and they only returned to land on Saturday afternoon.

A video shot aboard the Judy on Friday shows 50ft waves hitting the platform and the neighboring CoslRival accommodation rig.
